Name Pronunciation

Name Conventions

My name breaks down like so:

S.First initial
QiouyiMiddle name
LuFamily name

You may refer to me as S., Sophie, Qiouyi, or Lu. “S. Qiouyi” and “Qiouyi Lu” are both incorrect. I should be alphabetized as “Lu, S. Qiouyi.”

I prefer to have my entire name displayed as “S. Qiouyi Lu” instead of “S. Lu” or other variations. I always use a period after the first initial (S., not S).

My pronouns are ae/aer/aers, e/em/eirs, and they/them/theirs, in order of preference. You may use the titles M. or Mx. (pronounced “mix”). When describing me, use only the term “nonbinary” (not “enby”), as I do not use the term “trans” or “transgender” to describe myself. I don’t mind being included in lists of “trans” or “enby” authors, though, with the understanding that I am being included under an umbrella term for visibility. But I do not want to be included in lists of women, as I do not use the term to describe myself.
